Entitled The Fireflies of the Architect Zdeněk Podhůrský (19 September 1920 – 31 March 1981), the puppet retrospective presents one of the most famous 20th century Czech artists and one of the most influential puppet creators. The charming puppets on display which appeared in TV bedtime stories (The Fireflies, The Adventures of Dunno and His Friends, The Stories of the Chocolate Man) as well as drawings, sketches, calendar puppets, working photos, and information texts remind one of this draughtsman and artist’s brilliance. Visitors may also admire the puppets from the last incomplete animated series inspired by the Greek legends and myths as well as Hannibal, Giant Goliath with his tiny defeater David, and other mythical figures.

Furthermore, an artist and puppet workshop is open for visitors.
